HDFS General option

The HDFS general option enables you to take an interdisciplinary approach to families and human development across the lifespan within the contexts of school, work and communities. It will prepare you for careers in schools and in the helping professions, or will position you to pursue advanced academic degrees in a variety of fields. It offers tremendous flexibility and is especially beneficial if you also seek a related major such as ethnic studies, pre-nursing, psychology, sociology, Spanish or public health.
